It sounds too much like the rejuvenation methods in Peter Hamilton's stories...
Anyway, would you really want to live for a thousand years? Who would get to choose to do so? The rich and extremely wealthy, no doubt.
I would definitely like to live for thousands of years, but only if I never grew old. To see and experience such a long time, and have all the time in the world, not having to worry about getting old in a short time.
When it will be possible and who will have that possibility is a good question. I think 20 years from now is almost too optimistic, but who knows? Also, what kind of laws will regulate such substances, if any at all?
i dont think it is possible, since organisms have a certain life spams...
and the life spam is probably coded in the DNA, so some of our body mechanics have to change in order to increase our life spams.
It seems like this method is based on constantly repairing the damage, thereby you would not grow old. I don't know enough to figure out if this could work, but it would be great.
and, if we do have 1000 yrs of life, the whole world would be populated in a great density.
I don't think I would want to live that long! Hey talk about over population...
True, if everyone used it. But will it be availible to everyone? As I understand it, the birth rates in many industrialised nations are lower than death rates, so perhaps it wouldn't lead to overpopulation at once. Maybe it would eventually. So, how would society change because of this? Would it regulate or even stop drugs that offer extreme longevity or would they limit how many children each family can have?
